Quincy's first HalloweenIt’s hard to believe it’s already October and the harvest season is quickly winding down; hopefully this weekend’s weather will not rain on the annual Harvest Homecoming parade. Be sure and stop by the market and visit our veggie wagon with the kiddos to capture the essence of the harvest. We will have an excellent seasonal photo opportunity and mini pumpkins for the children, be sure to bring your camera.

Kenny’s  broccoli is beautiful this week and we should have plenty, but no cauliflower until after Harvest Homecoming.  We will have loads of fall/winter squashes available… spaghetti, acorn, butternut, etc… Also available this Saturday: fresh green beans, potatoes,  green and golden zucchini, yellow summer squash, Swiss chard, kale, cucumbers, “candy” onions, bell peppers, cabbage, jalapenos, mixed hot peppers, pablono peppers, sweet banana peppers, cherry tomatoes and sweet potatoes.

Tomatoes…. we still have them and several varieties are still available. We also still have some canning tomatoes available on a pre-order basis only… be sure to place your order if you are wanting to make homemade salsa, pasta sauce or your favorite recipes.

We are still picking apples… Golden and Red Delicious apples will be available this week. We will also have a few Mutzu, which are great for cooking and apple butter making.

Don’t forget to pick up your farm-fresh, free-range eggs at the market. Just a reminder that we have been selling out early each week… so come early or pre-order to make sure you get the items you need.

“Basket of the Week” customers ~ please remember to bring back your baskets and make sure to e-mail me a reminder to ensure your basket order… val@russellveggies.com

Thanks for your patronage,

Val & Kenny
